PR 8.9 Managing climate change risks amidst uncertainty: designing development co-operation to support national and sub-national adaptation

Wednesday 11 May, 08.45 – 10.30, Diamond Room I

The objective is to share experience of how developing countries are putting into practice climate (and disaster-related) risk transfer and sharing tools and assessing how these tools can be strengthened at the national and local level. The session will facilitate an exchange of views amongst development cooperation providers and adaptation practitioners on how to successfully integrate adaptation into national and local development policy and planning. After one introductory presentation from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and one presentation by a G7 country on the Climate Risk Initiative, partner countries (Colombia/Bolivia, Philippines - tbc) will showcase their experience.
